London Street Art: Brick Lane

Street Art Documentary | London’s Brick Lane is something like the epicentre for creativity and young, modern life-style in London. Especially around the old Truman Brewery with its galleries, bars and markets a lot of the otherwise shy London street art can be found.

With his upcoming street art documentary “Brick Lane in Art” film-maker Shafiur Rahman wants to sketch a creative portrait of this Europe-wide well-know street and its surrounding area. Therefore he interviewed several more or less famous street artists and other protagonists in in London, Paris, Berlin and Madrid.

I wanted to shoot a social documentary which would frame the street, its life, and the complex web in which it operates. I wanted to hear the area’s official stories. And of course the other side of those stories. I started filming in the fall of 2009. Seems a long time ago. And so this little trailer is a quiet announcement that we are serious about the final edit now…
(Shafiur Rahman)

I really like that trailer and especially the statement by Grems. He’s totally right – I learned that in the three month I spent in London last year – when he says, that London is good “for street art money, because good street art is in Berlin now”! So if you want to make money as a street artist, you have to gain a foothold in the British capital but if you like to feel and see the pure street art you have to come to Berlin…

I’m looking forward to watch the entire documentary!
